About the Author: Kevin Telfer is the author of The Remarkable Story of Great Ormond Street Hospital

The creator of Peter Pan, . Barrie, was a hugely enthusiastic cricketer of very little talent. That didn't stop him from leading perhaps the most extraordinary amateur cricket team ever to have taken the field. Some of the 20th century's most famous writers including A. A. Milne, P. G. Wodehouse, Arthur Conan Doyle (who was a decent cricketer) and Jerome K. Jerome, turned out for Barrie's team between 1890 and 1913.

Or perhaps that should read books, because I'm not sure Kevin Telfer ever quite works out what he is writing.

The creator of Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie, was a hugely enthusiastic cricketer of very little talent. That didn't stop him from leading perhaps the most extraordinary amateur cricket team ever to have taken the field. Some of the twentieth century’s most famous writers including A. A. Milne, P. G. Wodehouse, and Jerome K. Jerome, regularly turned out for Barrie’s team between 1890 and 1913. This very Edwardian vision of village cricket, what Barrie called "green fields dotted with white figures on reasonable terms," was only brought to an end by the First World War. In Peter Pan’s First XI, Kevin Telfer weaves cricket, literature, history, humor, and biography to create an entertaining account of this little-known band of cricketing Peter Pans—and the age in which they lived.

I never thought anyone would be able to take two things that I find extraordinarily interesting: cricket and JM Barrie, and weave them into a book that is almost unreadably boring. But kudos to Kevin Telfer for doing just that.

This book is meticulously researched, and was obviously a labor of love, but that just isn't enough. Mr. Telfer is just not that good a writer. He simply does not have what it takes to make this book interesting. Honestly, I couldn't even get through the first couple of chapters. It just bored me stiff.

This book not only gives a strong insight into Barrie but also the literary, artistic and social circle of the time. It loses it way at times otherwise it would have rated 4 stars.
